France's ANJ Warns Operators Over T&C's

France's gaming regulator Autorité Nationale des Jeux has issued a warning to gaming operators in the country, stipulating that they need to review their respective terms and conditions to remove any ambiguous clauses that are contradictory to gaming laws.

The warning stems from the regulator carrying out a review following complaints by players who alleged that betting operators were using terms of use that seemed to violate France's gaming regulations. The review showed that there's an ongoing issue with operators being out of compliance when it comes to their terms and conditions, necessitating the change.

Operators will have to remove any illegal and/or ambiguous clauses that restrict consumer rights to compensation. They cannot restrict forms of proof for players, cannot reduce payments unfairly, and cannot limit claim periods for cases.

ANJ is hoping to get a level of compliance in place voluntarily so that they don't have to dictate terms and condition verbiage as part of the operating contract as part of the licencing procedure in France.
